Image obtained from a video uploaded to YouTube on January 27, 2015 shows a still image of Japanese hostage Kenji Goto holding a photo allegedly showing captured Jordanian pilot Maaz al-KassasbehThe Islamic State jihadist group threatened Tuesday to kill a Japanese journalist and a Jordanian pilot within 24 hours unless Amman frees a jailed female militant. A voiceover, purportedly by Goto, warns that Jordan is blocking the Japanese journalist's release by failing to free Sajida al-Rishawi, a would-be suicide bomber on death row since 2006. It follows a video released last week in which the group claimed to have beheaded another Japanese hostage, Haruna Yukawa, and said Goto would be killed next if Rishawi was not freed. Japan said following the new threat that it was seeking help from Jordan.
